The 1st Annual Mackinac Bridge Antique Tractor Crossing is September 12, 2008. Man, if they were doing this on a Saturday I would SO be there. I love antique tractors and I love the Mackinac Bridge - what a combo! Rain or shine the parade is scheduled to begin around 1pm in Mackinaw City and head north over the Mackinac Bridge to St. Ignace and end at the Kewadin Casino for a weekend tractor display. The only thing that will delay or cancel the parade is high winds. The crossing of over 600 antique tractors will take an estimated 3 hours to complete.
On Saturday evening, September 13, is the Truck Parade of Lights featuring numerous big rigs. The 13th Annual Big Rig Truck Show will be taking place in St. Ignace.
It's a busy weekend at the Mackinac Bridge as Sunday is the 'Bike the Mighty Mac' event beginning at 7am. Looks like a fun weekend to be up at 'The Bridge.'
